Overview

Many visitors come to historic Boston to walk in the footsteps of the Founding Fathers, but this collegiate city is also dynamic and modern, not to mention one of the greenest cities in America.
Explore Boston is part of a brand-new series and is the ideal pocket companion when discovering this lively and historic city: a full-color guide containing 16 easy-to-follow routes which lead you from the Freedom Trail’s famous sights around Boston Common and Charlestown to the Back Bay’s fabulous art museums and Harvard’s prestigious colleges, as well as out to the colonial settlements at Salem and Plymouth and the seaside charms of Provincetown.
Insight’s trademark cultural coverage perfectly sets the routes in context, with introductions to Boston’s cuisine, love of sport, and historical significance. The best places to eat and drink are highlighted in each route and in the directory section, which also contains a wealth of useful practical information, including a range of carefully selected hotels to suit all budgets. All routes are plotted on the useful pull-out map, and evocative photography captures the essence of the city.
